    Story

    The picture of my Dad above, shows him at his best, happy, cheeky and reading the Racing Post whilst meant to be working! Mum would often sigh at Dad's relaxed working hours i.e. strolling home at 1130am announcing his shift for the day was done!

    In his final days, Dad was cared for by the wonderful staff in Ward 11 at the Western General, Edinburgh. They made him and us feel like we were the only patient and family they were caring for. I simply want to do something to thank them and to honour Mum and Dad's memory, so have entered the Supernova 5K at the Kelpies on 10 November! (also my 42nd birthday - what a pressie to give myself!)

    Grieving for Mum and Dad will continue for the rest of my own life but I know that my moments of sadness will lessen and I will be able to focus on the happy stuff more and more, which is sort of where C25K comes in, I wanted to do something for myself, get fit, shift some lbs but most importantly, raise money in Mum and Dad's memory. I have enjoyed the C25K training more than I thought I ever would and can honestly say I have felt Mum and Dad with me, pushing me through the times of struggle when I felt like my legs were going to fall off and I couldn't take another step!

    I miss them every minute of every day.

    All donations and support will mean the world to me. Thank you #GGTTH xx 💚

      I just wanted to thank everyone who has supported me in my 5k experience and to everyone who was able to donate. With some last minute cash donations, you have helped me raise £702 for ward 11. I’m hoping to visit the ward before Christmas and I think I’d like them to spend it on things Dad would’ve liked, wee portable radios and a few Broons and Oor Wullie annuals! These things are sure to be of some comfort to the patients. Thanks so much again....Kirsty 💚
